Course Overview

Licensing agreements are frequently used by commercial entities and public or quasi public bodies for the development of new business prospects and for cross-border expansion. This two-day seminar will give practical advice on the legal and commercial considerations essential for securing a successful deal.

It offers a comprehensive overview of all the key matters to be considered – by the licensor and the licensee – when dealing with international licensing agreements generally and in particular when handling manufacture under licence and technology transfer agreements.

This seminar is not jurisdiction specific and is therefore ideal for those working both in the UK and overseas.

Who should attend?

  • In-house counsel
  • Trainee solicitors
  • Private practice lawyers
  • Lawyers
  • Commercial and contract managers
  • Business development managers
  • Licensing executives with little or no experience of drafting and negotiating international licensing agreements
